The percentage of Linden Hills residents who live below the poverty level decreased from 5 percent in 1979 to 2 percent in 1989, but then increased to 4 percent in 1999. The neighborhood percentages were consistently lower than citywide. The percentage of neighborhood residents 65 years old and over living below the poverty level was close to the city percentage in 1979, but then it fell sharply in the following decades.

Linden Hills' percentage of families living below the poverty rate decreased from 1979 to 1989, but then climbed a decade later to its highest point. In 1999, 4 percent of all families and 8 percent of all families with children in the neighborhood lived in poverty. In 1989, both of these figures dropped to just 1 percent. Even during the high point in 1999, these percentages remained below the citywide percentages.
